    Beasley is a wing nut. Note that he won't tell you what he has against the vaccine

    Insults and shaming attempts. Any guess as to why some of us don't want to discuss this with people like you?

    I don't think people who have it taken it can have an open and honest discussion because they're beyond invested. What if the vax is dangerous? Could people who've taken it truly consider the possibility they've made a horrible mistake? One that cannot be undone? Could someone possibly believe me if i presented evidence that they might die? the emotional subconscious pushback would be intolerable.

  2. I sent a PM to Brent and thought I'd post what sent because i have concerns and like all of you guys!

    Hey bro, I know you're bummed about all that's going on. I don't have words of wisdom to say things will get better soon, but as you pointed out in text, there are plenty of people who are concerned, so you're not alone.

    I'd like to encourage you to become a prepper... you know, those crazy people who think the world is going to end! But most preppers are more concerned about local natural disasters -- every few years we have a blizzard here in Denver Colorado. Some day, that blizzard is going to last longer and take out utilities. If it's bad enough, people will die and many will suffer. So, I have extra food, water, and fire wood, just in case.

    This past year has shown how fragile the supply chain is:

    • Distribution problems -- truckers got sick, a boat got stuck in the Suez Canal, dock workers got sick... supply came to a temporary halt
    • panic buying (all that toilet paper, etc) got grabbed up and shelves were empty for a week or two
    • cyber attacks took gas distribution (east coast) off-line. There's an attack right now on meat processing plant JBS.
    • work force shortage caused plants to shut down

    supply chain can freeze for an extended period of time causing all kinds of mayhem

    And there are significant issues with society and the economy. It doesn't take nuclear war or an asteroid strike to make prepping make sense. So, if I may encourage, get a few weeks of food and water, just so you have some stuff put aside.

    If you want to learn more, I visit www.survivalistboards.com regularly and there's a lot more info.

    Stay strong and carry on.

    How is it that the Raiders picked the first WR off the board with Ruggs, but no one likes him and the Raiders only got 26 catches from him last year? That is one of the scary parts about picking an Alabama player. Are they that good or are they enjoying riding on the tank known as the Crimson Tide?

    I guess no one trusts lvr?

    did darrius heyward bey suck or did the raiders ruin him?

    It was better when there was some more traffic here and it wasn't dominated by a few people, some of whom live to make outlandish posts for attention. 

    Totally agree.

    It was nice before people who felt the need to control content took, well, control and chased people away.

    Alright now, that's progress and moving in the right direction!  Seeing him as valuable in some regard, pretty soon you'll be jumping on board with him being a top 30-35 WR play!  You can do it!  B)

    Lol

    I'll stick with my FF projection and quote bump my own post to tease and annoy delightfully in six months.

    But also, plenty of great players who are way more valuable in real football than FF

    I wonder what the Titans are expecting out of Jones? That's a lot of money for what most are calling a WR2. 

    To be clear, I'm not projecting big numbers but i do think he'll be very important in key situations. I think his addition is the difference in one additional regular season win and one game deeper into the playoffs.

    Granted, you'd need access to alternate universes to to prove that but point is... I think his real football contributions will be well worth it

    Now DMD has offered his stats and ranking, is Opie still going to tell us that a WR24 is dead and not worthy of a roster spot?   

    Lol just because David says something doesn't make it gospel. I can respect and disagree with his opinion.

    And I do disagree.

    I'll put you down for your projection as wr24 since you can't come up with your own independent thought #triggered

    I thought the fun part of ff is having different opinions?

    And Steve unable to provide a projection.

    I'd like to hear from our overlord @DMD

     

    Julio Jones a #1 WR? No way.  I currently have him at No. 24 (PPR). I go through a in-depth analysis and review over the next month for a second complete re-ranking but I doubt I'll change much. 

     

    I currently have him at 76-980-6 but that is more likely to fall than to rise.

     

    Jones was a Top-6 WR for many  years through 2019. Then he had hip and hamstring issues last season. He's 32 years old and having multiple health issues is very troublesome for an aging wideout.

     

    My concern with him is less about his health than where he ended up. TEN has a rushing offense and was No. 1 in rushing attempts last year - and they relied heavily on just one guy.  They were No. 30 in pass attempts.  Ryan Tannehill was very efficient and effective give the lower amount of passes, but then again the defense first assumption was that the Titans would run the ball. A.J. Brown was a touchdown magnet and Jones has long been a "yards not scores" kind of player. He replaces Corey Davis who had four 100-yard games and then little else in all other games. I could see that sort of potential and inconsistency from Jones as a No. 2 WR in an offense that threw less than almost anyone last year.

     

    I am also concerned that the Titans have one of the worst schedules for passing in the NFL this year. And they are going from No. 17 to No. 30 in schedule strength for WRs.

     

    It will be interesting to see what happens and on the surface of it, the move looks great for the Titans. I'll be following it closely.

     

     

    Thanks for your insights!
